Great property in a fantastic location - very central but quiet at night. We really enjoyed the fact that it is such a historic location. The flat is well-equipped and comfortable. We parked in the Omni carpark (next to John Lewis) less than 10 mins walk away, and just parked outside the flat at the beginning and end of our holiday.

The flat is well equipped and very comfortable, and remarkably quiet for its on-street location.

The apartment has such a lot of potential. It's in a great location and is so practical for a city break. It was just what we needed. However, it wasn't particularly clean when we arrived and it's in need of some TLC. Time for an update and some repairs. Then it will be lovely.

A fabulous holiday property in a fantastic location. The apartment is stunning, although a little too shabby chic. It is such a light and spacious environment and so close to the centre of Edinburgh. 3 generations all had a great stay.
